My plan was to tell you all about this great book: How to be a Friend to a Friend who's Sick, but then my sick friend died so I never finished the book. Instead, for these Days of the Dead, our days to remember and honor our beloved deceased; I thought I'd remind you of all the awesome authors who've passed away this year. Biographies, written while the authors were still alive, provided by the publishers.
We are sorry to report that the library is out of eclipse safety glasses!
We do, however, have some great information about viewing the eclipse safely, reading material about the eclipse, and an eclipse viewing event. Information available here.
